Recipes & Cooking / Re: Cabbage Rolls
« Last post by SilverLining on February 20, 2024, 03:56:21 PM »
Finally got around to making this today.

To get the leaves separated I put water in Instant pot, just about to trivet. I cut out some of core of cabbage and placed it core side down. High pressure for 3 minutes, QR.

After peeling as many leaves as I could, I repeated with Instant pot.

Worked really well.
